Какво ще правите

You'll ride the train South from Dublin for 40 minutes along the scenic coastline to reach the starting point in Killiney.

Our adventure from sea to summit begins with a revitalising walk along the beach. We'll climb over boulders and take in the beautiful panoramic views as the fresh breeze from the Irish Sea energizes us for the upcoming ascent of 153 metres.

Over 300 quick paced steps up the hillside and through the trees make the stops to admire the scenery even more satisfying. Look out for buzzards soaring overhead and squirrels hopping between the trees as we approach the hilltop. The 275 year old monument at the summit is a perfect place to stop for a drink, to catch our breath and enjoy the spectacular views spreading out in all directions.

We'll descend under the canopy and through the famous rock-climbing quarry before ascending to the second view point. We'll be treated to an inspiring view across Dublin bay, Dun Laoghaire harbour and the entire city.

The final descent takes us through the woods and towards our end point completing approximately 5.5km (3.5miles).
Other things to note
The Irish weather is all part of the experience, trips will continue regardless of weather where possible.

Desmond was a great tour guide and had deep knowledge of the area and history - this hike was the highlight of my trip! An easy trip on DART from the city center and you arrive in a beautiful, lush area of Dublin with amazing views. Definitely a must do!

This is an awesome experience! The climb is not nearly as hard as it looks and the views are worth it. Desmond is warm and engaging. He is very good at sharing his knowledge about the area and answering questions. I highly recommend this experience!

This hike was a lot of fun. We had a nice friendly conversation throughout, while following some less used trails and occasionally straying off the trail completely and cutting through the forest. In the hindsight, the area was quite busy with dog walkers and fellow hikers, but we managed to avoid most of them most of the time, which made the experience feel a lot more personal and unique. Even the fog, which robbed us of most of the views, by the end helped create a spooky Hallloweeny atmosphere among the trees on our way back. Highly recommended!

I had a great experience today! Desmond was super friendly, funny, and very informative!!! You could tell that he wanted you to enjoy as much as he was enjoying it. Snacks where awesome, he turned me on to dried mango slices, lol!!! Even though the weather can change constantly and the mist be in way, it was still so beautiful and amazing views!!!! It honestly was one of my favorite things to do in Ireland! If you love nature, and going a good hike this is the experience you want to go on!!!

This was my brother's first visit to Ireland, one of highlights was the hike with Desmond. Even though the weather wasn't ideal it was still a great hike. Desmond was knowledgable, funny, and made you feel like you were hiking with friends. It was such a great time we definitely recommend it.

I had a fantastic time on my hike with Desmond. I was the only one on this tour so I enjoyed conversing with Desmond about a variety of topics. We had absolutely brilliant weather for our hike, sunny and warm with a lovely ocean breeze. The views from the beach and two summit points were stunning. Pictures do not do it justice. Desmond is a fantastic guide and it was truly a pleasure to have met him. I highly recommend this experience.
